Spaceape (Feat. the Spaceape)
You Hurt Me
This first album on Kode9's deeply-respected Hyperdub label comes from the mysterious Burial, who carves out a sound which sends the dormant slinky syncopations of UK garage, via radio interference, into a padded cell of cushioned, muffled bass, passing through clouds of Pole's dense crackle dub en route. 'Burial' explores a tangential, parallel dimension of the growing dubstep ouevre, using sounds set in a near-future South London submerged underwater. You can never tell if the crackle is the burning static off pirate radio transmissions, or the tropical downpour of the city outside, taking its loud quiet aesthetic neither from the latest digital glitch software nor a mere nostalgia for vinyl's intrinsic physicality. In their sometimes suffocating melancholy, most of these tracks seem to yearn for drowned lovers, as haunted echoed voices breeze in and out, on roads to and from other times. The smouldering desire of 'Distant Lights' is cooled only by the percussive ice sharp slicing of blades and jets of hot air blowing from the bass. Listen also for a fleeting appearance from Hyperdub's resident vocalist, The Spaceape, unravelling his cryptobiography.

Basically an outstanding album and definitely worth the purchase! If you're into DubStep it's a must have, if you like new and exciting music this is definitely an interesting album for your collection.
Burial is a great album for those who travel through London at night often. Set as a soundscape of the city with haunting atmospheres and interesting white noises wrapped up with original beats, and melodies...
Original, Underground, British Music setting the standard...
